After Jerusalem came out, did you go out and buy za’atar, only to find it in very, very large quantities? Us, too. That said, we like having it around: The blend of sesame seeds, dried thyme, dried marjoram, and sumac sits nicely atop hummus or Greek yogurt dip. We also like to sprinkle the slightly tart mixture on olive oil-drizzled bread or pita, but our za’atar stash is still looking fairly substantial. Here are 10 other ways to put it to good use:
